Our pool problems are getting increasingly worse. About 4 weeks ago our water was cloudy and we took for testing at the pool store. We treated with 3 gallons of stabilizer, super phospate (?) and 5lbs. shock. It didn't improve and then became green. We took for a test again and then treated with a quart of algaecide and 8 pounds of shock. A week later we took another sample and treated with 1/2 gallon agaecide and 12 pounds of shock. The water is still green. The lastest water sample says that it is balanced, but the water is still green. We have been faithfully brushing and filtering. At the same time, we have replaced the sand in the filter and replaced the pressure gauge. The pressure never rises above 12. We were told to just run the filter 24/7 since the water ph, alkalinity, etc is where it should be. This morning we discovered that our pump overheated and died. So, now we have a green pool and a broken pump. Any ideas? We are tempted to just cover the pool and deal with it next year, but we don't want to the algae to stain the liner (just put in this year!). HELP!!
We live in the metro Atlanta area.
Our pool is an inground vinyl. It's dimensions are 19'x37' and 27,000 gallons
